"Virkamiesten paperinpyörittely onkin Suomessa myytti, arvioi työntekijäliitto Pardian puheenjohtaja Niko Simola. Valtion työntekijöistä 40 prosenttia toimii sisäisen tai ulkoisen turvallisuuden tehtävissä, kuten rajavartiostossa, tullissa, poliisina tai puolustusvoimissa; tehtävissä joita harva karsisi, ja joita on vaikea automatisoida.
[...]
EU-komissio totesi viime vuonna Suomen julkishallinnon unionin tehokkaimmaksi. Tarkka vertailu on vaikeaa, koska julkisia tehtäviä hoitavat eri tahot. Esimerikiksi Tanskassa palokunnan tehtäviä on ulkoistettu yksityiselle yritykselle.

Sen sijaan Tanskan ja Suomen verokarhun tehokkuutta on helpompi verrata: kummassakin on noin 5,5 miljoonaa asukasta, mutta Tanskan verottajalla työskentelee 6 300, Suomessa 5 300 ihmistä."

Suomen verohallinnossa on noin 5 300 työntekijää, samankokoisen Tanskan verohallinnossa noin 6 300. Suomen byrokraateista noin 40 prosenttia toimii turvallisuusalalla, kuten poliisina, tullissa tai puolustusvoimissa.
